Stayokay Rotterdam

Overblaak 85-87, Rotterdam, 3011 MH, Netherlands

If you're on a budget, this modern hostel in the middle of the city is just the ticket, and it occupies several of Rotterdam's most iconic and eye-catching buildings: the Piet Blom–designed "cube houses" built in 1984 between Blaak train and metro station and the Oude Haven. The latter is home to several good waterside bars. The entrance is up a level from the street, accessed via steps or a ramp. It's hard to figure out how they find space for 250 beds inside these oddly shaped structures with few obvious vertical walls, but they do. Dorms contain four to nine beds, but each has its own en suite bathroom. Book way in advance to try for one of the five double rooms, best for extra privacy. There's air-conditioning, which is unusual for a hostel.
